This chapter provides all information necessary to install Klaros-Testmanagement.
Klaros-Testmanagement is providing installers for Microsoft Windows- and Linux-based operating systems. The installer contains all additional programs which are needed for the first use of Klaros-Testmanagement. These include the file-based database (Apache Derby), the Apache Tomcat application server and a suitable Java runtime environment.
|Database not suitable for production environments|
The installer configures Klaros-Testmanagement to use the embedded Apache Derby database which is not intended for production use.
For production systems, it is strongly recommended to use one of the other recommended databases like MariaDB, MySQL, PostgreSQL or SQLServer. Each of them will provide significantly better performance. The database can be changed after running the initial installation process, (see Section 3.11, “Changing the Default Database”).
The license model varies depending on the Klaros edition used. Compared to the Klaros-Testmanagement Community Edition the Klaros-Testmanagement Enterprise Edition offers a limited amount of functions, but does not limit the number of users who can work with the software.
With Klaros-Testmanagement Enterprise Edition the purchased license limits the number of active users who can work with the software.
